A Madison County jail escapee turned himself in Friday morning after being on the run for nearly a week.

Roger Million, 24, escaped from the Madison County Detention Center last Friday evening.  Monday morning he turned himself in.

The jailer said Million apologized when he turned himself in and Million said he escaped because he wanted to visit his sister’s grave.

Million broke-out of the Madison County Detention Center’s recreation yard Friday according to police.

Jailer Doug Thomas said Million has been in and out of the detention center in the past few years and never caused a problem before. 

Thomas said he had a feeling that although Million wasn’t locked up, he was still nearby.

“Most of these people that do get out of the facility don't go anywhere.  Most of them stay home where they're at but we did have a feeling that he was still here and we were very fortunate that he turned himself back in,” said Thomas.

Million’s most recently lock-up was for a meth-related offense.  He now also faces escape and criminal mischief charges.

The two inmates investigators believe helped Million escape, could also face more charges.
